A: You didn't state why you wanted a divorce. Therefore, I assume it will be no fault divorce. Under New York no fault, the marriage needs to be broken for 6 months or more. You should seek the advice of an attorney to determine if you can handle it yourself. You can also contact me at (202)294-0435 to schedule an initial consultation.

A: First, consult with an attorney. If you have children and/or assets, you will need an agreement and divorce documents. If your spouse agrees, you can also do divorce mediation which is rapid, inexpensive and as painless as possible. Call me for a free consultation. 845 634 8179. See me website on Justia.
